Growing your own firewood?
I keep cutting, cutting ... but I don't re-plant.
I still have many years' worth of oak and maple to cook with, but I still have to buy my apple & cherry.
It would be nice to plant some fruit trees, and other fast-growing hardwoods, so I can have a self-sustaining stash of wood. Cutting what I grow.
I Googled for fast growing hardwoods, and the Empress tree came up a few times. Can grow 8 ft/year, so I'm thinking I'll have usable empress wood in no more than five years.
Has anyone cooked with empress?
